4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
4/22/2015 (draught at Martyís Hops & Vines in Cincinnati, Ohio): Whatís this? A CURRY beer?! Hell yeah! This beer is absolutely fantastic. Aroma is mostly curry with a bit of coconut as well. The flavor is very dynamic and changes from drink to drink and as the temperature of the beer goes up. Lots of curry at first and it stays throughout, but the coconut and lime definitely show more on subsequent tastes and when warmer. The cayenne adds a bit of heat that builds, but doesnít go over the top. Everything about this beer is right on point! I LOVE IT! I have a bottle of it that Iím looking forward to trying as well. Amazing beer!

I think I was too scared to rate the original Sev brought back from her "working jolliday" nearly two years ago. Apparently theyíve a few spares.
The nose is one the most ridiculously "on the nose" noses of Ratebeer nosdom. The coconut is always there, but thereís brushes of the lime leaf and then sweaty spice. It literally makes me hungry. My stomach did a wee loop-de-loop. Initial taste is...sorry back to the nose, thereís some blackcurrant notes and odd choc after the first few numbing sips. Rich, mutilated maltiness and a big roast. The spiciness, light drying nutty cumin sifting through. Lean and gritty curry buzz - spicy tang through and through. Yeeeesh. Iíve no idea how they managed to marinade this down to the hungry, active warmth going on here. Iím losing the plot here. If you find a bottle of this, slay it down - for the experience alone.

Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a medium khaki head. Minimal lacing. Nose is chili and curry spice, and the taste follows the nose. Very different, and very good.

Appearance: Pours black with a ring of tan around the edge.
Aroma: Curry powder, fresh squeezed lime, lime essence and hidden roast.
Taste: Curry, lime, dark chocolate. Cayenne pops out after the first sip and coats down to the throat.
Mouthfeel: Spicy, full bodied, super creamy.
Overall: Amazing amazing! I was doing backflips for it. I hope Ballast Point considers this for AT LEAST a once a year release.

Phone rate at Tiger!Tiger! Many pours over the last couple weeks. Black with beige head. Dark chocolate and coconut dominate, lime and roasted malt, mod amount of earthy spice. Flavor is still pretty tropical with the coconut lime notes, fairly earthy with bitterness at a 3, spicy heat at a 2-3. Alcohol well masked, alcohol too. Medium body, low mod carbonation. I didnít love the first glass. 2-3-4 and five I loved it.

On tap at the ginger man. Pours a very dark brown smell is a sweet spice but canít place the type of spice. Incredible aroma. Taste is very earthly with a little clove and cinnamon. There is a distinct burn on the palate which is unique and awesome. Not something I want more than a few sips of, but the few sips I took were terrific. I am rating it on the taste after a few sips. Not a whole glass, which would be too much

Pours a dark brown with a lighter brown head. Prominent notes of curry and coconut. Hints of thyme and chocolate. Iíve never had a beer quite like this. Bonus points for uniqueness alone.

Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of curry, coconut and vanilla. Taste is lime, curry, pepper and coconut. Nice heat that creeps in at the finish. Wow this is so complex. Smooth and fairly easy to drink however the heat intensifies as you drink

20121215 750ml from Canalís in Marlton, NJ. This one inspired me to log in for a rare online rate. Darkest cola brown with fleeting beige head then sort of flat and dull looking. Macaroon aroma with mild peat and light milk chocolate. Body is soft, creamy, coating, sticky. Flavor is spot on for the description: a nice coconut curry with slight hints of lime and a mild peppery burn. Love this beer, and at seven percent I could drink a mess of it. Wait, itís curry flavored so it should be a nice hangover cure, too, right? Excellent stuff.
